Copa Del Rey Last 16 – Real Sociedad vs Villarreal Betting Preview

Real Sociedad go into the 2nd leg of this tie with a 1-0 deficit as they were beaten when they travelled to Villarreal in the reverse fixture last week. David Moyes’ side drew 1-1 in their La Liga fixture over the weekend against Granada, Sociedad are 12th in the table and a long way off those all important Europa League places, if they can progress in this tournament then it will be good for the club but if they get eliminated I think it will benefit them as they will have more time to rest in between league matches.

Villarreal have the upper hand in this match with the goal advantage, if they score the first goal of the game then I think they will qualify as they’ll have an away goal which would mean Real Sociedad would have to put 3 past them to qualify which seems highly unlikely as they have only done that on one occasion this seasons and that was against Elche who are struggling at the bottom of the table. Villarreal also drew 1-1 on the weekend when they travelled to Malaga.

David Moyes will be delighted that he has a fully fit side to take into this game which means he can choose his strongest team in attempt to progress into the quarter finals of the competition.

Real Sociedad vs Villarreal Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

Real Sociedad need to play on the front foot in this game from the first whistle if they are to defeat Villarreal which not many teams have done this season and progress into the quarter finals of the tournament, it would be great for the club and the new manager David Moyes if they could overturn their 1 goal deficit and win this match.

Villarreal know that they have the upperhand in this one which could make them complacent but if they field a full strength side that I can’t foresee them having too many problems in this encounter. Expect Carlos Vela to be their danger man.

Time for my predictions now and my banker is going to be Villarreal to win to nil as they have done the last two times they have faced Real Sociedad.

My saver is going to be Villarreal race to 2 goals.
